First give away is your brake vents slats are made of wood they are factory, also your vent opening looks like it doesn't run parallel to the flare curve which I think is a aftermarket giveaway, and the aftermarket rockers dead giveaway is the opening for the jack point and the jack point itself only the best boxed rocker replicas even had holes and the jack point has some extra braceing that the factory put in. Hope this helps and I hope that it is factory the slats are IMHO the biggest giveaway as those little pieces are the most expensive pieces of wood you will ever buy.
